    Am I crazy, or are there or were there such things as Louisville Writing Tablets? I remember using them in first and second grade, but I can't find any proof they were called Louisville Writing Tablets, and that's what I need--for another teacher to remember them being called that. They were pads of wide-lined writing paper, much like newsprint, for young writers. The cover was white with black print, including a circular emblem on the front. I know this is silly, but please help! :)

    I certainly don't remember an Indian... Just black and white print.

    I KNOW exactly what you are talking about, I too used them but I cannot think of exactly what they are called, I do to think the name Louisville may have been on them, but I cannot remember. It could have just been a local thing...next time I am around I'll have to stop at the Parent Teacher store

    Those were Big Chief tablets, which are still available.

    I have a couple here on my desk at home :)

    I have used them since second grade (which I entered in 1961, so I guess I've been addicted to them for 48 years!).

    So well over a year ago I was for some strange reason needing to validate my memory of Louisville writing tablets...I think because no one I spoke to recalled them, yet they were very important at school. The lines on the inside progressively grew tighter together as the grade level of the tablet increased.

    Anyhow, I was just sorting through some old belongings and actually found one. I'm not crazy! Well, maybe I am for posting this randomness, but... :p

    *Actually, this is my sister's, who is still in middle school, so they were clearly used not so very long ago.
